We are excited to announce that we have formed a partnership with Traders Alloy, a Stockholm-based Open Finance venture, to join as a late co-founder
and venture developer. Together, we will help Traders Alloy find optimal
product-market fit and secure key partnerships and clients.
Traders Alloy was founded by Andrew Boddy (Founder and CTO) and Petter
Hattenbach (Founder & CEO) and empowers retail investors with data, tools, and
processes so that they can manage their stock portfolio like professionals.
Boddy is a highly experienced software Technical Leader, having helped both
enterprises and startups build and sell software solutions. Hattenbach is an
experienced investor, serving as Partner at Nocturne Ventures and CKDA Venture
Capital, and Venture Partner to Gorilla Capital. Traders Alloy has also previously
received backing from Startup Wise Guys, one of Europe's top B2B startup
"We have been busy building the Traders Alloy platform for the past two
years, always with a mission to democratize equity data and in the process
empower retail investors. This partnership with Katalysen Ventures will help
us elevate Traders Alloy into a bigger context, and to leverage the highly
consequential effects of Open Finance to achieve our mission and reduce
still-existing inefficiencies in equity markets," said Petter Hattenbach, Traders Alloy Co-Founder.
We have all seen how game-changing Open Banking has been to the financial
industry and banking. But when thinking about where the next big shift may be, we
feel Open Finance is on the same industry-disrupting path.
Open Finance can be defined as a data-sharing concept that allows users to share
their financial data with third parties. These other financial data sources can for
example from fiscal authorities, insurance providers, pension funds, or even utility
providers like electric companies.
“We believe in transparency, openness, and have seen first-hand many of the
inefficiencies in equity markets that remain to be addressed. Inefficiencies that
Traders Alloy has set out to solve. stated Peter Almberg, CEO of Katalysen Ventures.
We chose to back Traders Alloy because the timing feels right with new EUled Open Finance regulations just around the corner and because the talented
founders are exceptional doers. Furthermore, our fintech expertise and
network are a great match for Traders Alloy’s very tangible needs, allowing us
to help add key partners and early adopters to the company's platform," commented Peter Almberg, CEO of Katalysen Ventures.
Stay tuned and watch this space, we are also working on developing a new type of
forum for bringing together stakeholders within the Open Finance ecosystem!
